A canon shooting event was an unofficial sport at 1900 Olympic Games in Paris. The event was organized by the Paris chapter of the Société de tir au Canon.
Canon Shooting consisted of 17 events, all for men. Only French competitors participated. It is not clear what the competition involved, maybe shooting for distance and accuracy. There was a least a long range cannon shooting competition, and a siege competition. No specific results are known.
Canon shooting is not a sport that has continued to this day, and never appeared at the Olympics again. However, the closing ceremony at the London 2012 Games included a demonstration by a human cannonball.
